"Signal Out Of Range"!

by drumman1952 / November 15, 2005 11:52 PM PST

For the past two weeks, at random times but most likely after a cold boot, my monitor goes black with the message "Signal Out Of Range....118.2KHZ.....225.2HZ". I replaced the video card with an Asus N6600LE(AGP 8x, 256MDDDR) The motherboard is an Asus A7V600-X.
I run Windows XP Home with SP2, Norton Anti-Virus, Zone Alarm...The machine has an AMD Athlon XP 2600 CPU, 1 gig of ram and has an 80 gig hard drive. The monitor is a CTX VL700B. I did swap it with a Gateway monitor and had the same results.

The video card I replaced was an ATI 9600 series.

Other than that, the machine runs fine. Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

Thanks for the google tip. All says the same thing. What I don't understand is that I have been using the same monitor and video card since the machine was built almost three years ago with no video problems what-so-ever, then it started.
Would SP2 have anything to do with this issue?

In reply to: Thanks...

SP2 primarily shored up security issues and non-video related problem areas. It could be that one or the other is finally laying down. This is where I get to blame the user for OVER-using equipment. Wink Good luck and let us know.

and life goes on...
